Land Displacement, Involuntary Resettlement and Compensation Practice in the Mining Sector

The mining sector has become a focal point for the Malawian government, cited in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy II 2012-2016 as a priority sector, accompanied by growth in contributions to GDP over the last decade. Harnessing the country’s resources can spur on national socio-economic development if economic activity, environmental integrity, social concerns and effective governance systems are properly integrated. If these pillars of sustainable development are excluded countries may be bound by the so-called ‘resource curse’, which describes the situation of countries rich in non-renewable resources that are not able to use these resources to drive equitable socio – economic development, while countries with fewer resources tend to have higher economic growth.
